Spot shooting drill
This drill is designed to develop rhythm, consistency, and concentration.
Starting at #1, when a basket is made, you move back to the next spot. When a shot is missed, you move forward to the previous spot (or stay at #1 until you make that first shot). The object is to get to the last spot (#15) with the least number of shots.
You can do different versions of this drill:
All jump shots
All shots off the dribble (at each spot, you must dribble before shooting)
All shots off the pass (pass to yourself by throwing the ball out in front of you with back-spin)
Catch-and-pivot shots (face away from the basket, pass to yourself, pivot so you face the basket, and shoot)
Any combination of the above shots
You can also spread out the spots on the floor to expand the range of shooting. For example…Spot #1 is near the basket and Spot #5 is behind the 3-point line.
This drill is from the book Basketball Shooting Fundamentals: Special drills and mental training to reinforce great shooting habits.
